The StripFeeder Mini System features the same award-winning design of the original StripFeeder in a smaller, compact package (134 mm x 152 mm). This package is ideally suited for smaller prototype and rework machines as well as most SMT pick-and-place equipment.
The new StripFeeder Mini System is a cost effective way to load many components, including odd-form and custom components, without having to purchase expensive feeders. The quick-to-assemble, easy-to-install modules are designed for rapid loading of tape-and-reel components on existing SMT pick-and-place equipment. Why purchase expensive feeders for each component or a small strip of tape when you only need to place a few at a time?
The StripFeeder Mini System features a mechanical lock-spring to hold the tape in place by the sprocket hole for part registration and repeatable pick-and-place applications. This means you only have to teach the pick-up location one time and you can consistently reload the unit with the same parts over and over for longer runs. This feature is compatible with both paper and emboss tapes.
The StripFeeder Mini System features removable rails that can be mounted to accommodate a wide array of tape sizes in the same feeder. Unlike the fixed width version, the StripFeeder .mod can be adjusted by removing the rails and re-positioning them on the base plate at the desired width (4 mm pitched hole pattern). The rails align with precision pin locators and lock down tightly with magnets to guarantee a stable, repeatable application.
The StripFeeder Mini System rails utilize an innovative design to hold the components securely in the machined tracks and prevent parts from being miss-picked, flipped in the pocket, or lost. Customers also can remove rails to accommodate larger components up to 120mm tape width. The StripFeeder .mod system is built to JEDEC-standards and size specifications to allow the unit to be utilized in most types of SMT equipment or JEDEC-style tray feeder units.
TheStripFeeder Mini System also features rail position numbering so that designers can quickly create easy to set-up work instructions for product runs after prototyping. This also ensures that operators can verify that rails are properly aligned across the module to ensure tape and components properly held.
